*** my review is now live (slightly spoilery) ***
…and you’re going to have to wait until September for them too. Sorry. Still, these trailers are a great introduction to the much-anticipated movie.
I love trailers about space that have soaring music, and movie stars with fishbowls on their heads dangling off the outside of a rocket, and Ad Astra does not disappoint in this respect.
With the Earth being battered by something called The Surge, Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) heads into the heavens to find his dad, sadly not played by space liability Matt Damon… and save the world.
Here’s the synopsis:
Astronaut Roy McBride travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and to unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet.
His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
Ruth Negga and Liv Tyler also star, and the film is directed by James Gray. By the way that title is Latin, and means “to the stars”.

Watch the Ad Astra trailer now:
I thought from the trailer that this was a sequel to Space Cowboys because Tommy Lee Jones was left on the moon at the end.
